State election contestation expected in 2023. Committee

 State election contestation expected in 2023. Committee The election examination board in the Lower Saxony state parliament is expected to deal with the letter from two FDP politicians at the end of the first annual quarter of 2023 who are contesting the state election. This said committee chairman André Bock (CDU) of the German Press Agency in Hanover on Tuesday. The appeal period for the state election would take until December 16. After that, the state election management would deal with it, later the committee.

The Hessian member of the state parliament Walter Wissenbach said he leaves the AfD. He was no longer a member of the AfD state parliamentary group, he said in Wiesbaden. He wanted to continue working as a parliamentary member of parliament. As a reason for his break with the AfD, Wissenbach cited, among other things, that "the outrage over sympathy explanations of individual party officials to right -wing extremist organizations and positions" in the AfD "was far too weak or not at all".

Wissenbach also complained about the tone and the manners in the Hessian AfD parliamentary group. In addition, the choice of list candidates for the 2023 state election was a "farce". He also did not agree with the attitude of the AfD to Corona issues. Hessenschau.de initially reported on leaving.
